That looks great Bob. If you don't mind I will check back with you in a month and see how things are going with it/how the dogs like it etc. That may be the way I go. I just can't keep grass growing well in my little backyard.

Does the "vermiculite/cement" combo allow drainage? Or, if not, where does the dog pee go?

What CB has described is called lightweight concrete. What you are describing is called permeable concrete. Used extensively now in the USA, should be the standard Lakeside too, but it is not.

It is permeable. The water soaks right through. It can be hosed down every few days to wash away the pee. The dogs love it. No more peeing or pooping on the walkway.

Fabulous!!!
I have two mats (each 2x4) just sitting on the flagstone courtyard. They are sitting on the slight slope that drains out under the garage door to the street. I wash them down every couple of days as well but pick up poop and bag it every day. Ginny is fastidious and will only go pee and poo on the mats. Cora could care less... but she was born and raised in a dog run with only solid concrete underneath. We got her when she was three months old but it has proved to be impossible to change her habits. No bigee because she has never pooped or peed in the house... not ever and she is now 7. I'm grateful for that. Funny, same thing with the Belgian Malinois we had previously.

Looks nice and I'm sure you are pleased. BUT, like you said it's expensive. $3,xxx Canadian for 15 meters square ain't chump change, eh?
